MSNBC: 7 Movies that make guys cry -- “Gladiator” (2000) -- "There could not be a more masculine movie. Russell Crowe, in his scowling, muscled prime, stars as Maximus, meanest fighter ever to grace the Coliseum. Heck, his family was murdered; he's got nothing to lose. Shot in sober gray tones by director Ridley Scott, “Gladiator” won kudos, including the Oscar for best picture, for its visceral depiction of a very violent tale. All of which means that the lump in male throats when Maximus dies, with his honor intact, is testosterone induced. “At my signal, unleash hell ...” and tears." - Thanks, Allison

Newstext -- The Daily Telegraph: Baby Bunnies hop on in name of family fun -- THEY may have done away with the cheerleaders, but Russell Crowe and Peter Holmes a Court's beloved Bunnies were not without a cute cheer squad for the Charity Shield. The club owners arranged for more than 120 toddlers to take to the field wearing the red and green strip on Saturday as part of their new family-friendly half-time entertainment -- with Holmes a Court promising it would be a regular feature this season. "We just thought it was the right thing to do --to have the children involved -- because the Shield raises money for children's charities,'' he told Confidential. "[Their involvement] will definitely continue throughout the season ... you could tell they were having a great time and I think everyone enjoyed it.'' Holmes a Court also revealed the kiddies weren't the only ones recruited to the Rabbitohs' cause at the weekend -- David Hick's lawyer Major Michael Mori was another to hit Homebush to cheer on the Bunnies, but didn't run into Dragons fan John Howard at the game. - Thanks, Chats

The Courier Mail: Blood brothers of the beach -- " Maroubra, Crowe tells the audience, is Aboriginal for "a place of thunder" ? an apt name for a suburb in which white settlers would experience much conflict. A housing commission enclave, the biggest sewage plant in the southern hemisphere, Long Bay Jail and a rifle range set up Maroubra to fail its children, Crowe suggests in his narrative. "Maroubra, with its challenges, saw many of the younger members of the community born into an environment rife with domestic conflict, parental neglect and drugs," he says. "(The Abbertons) along with their childhood friends, were raised by the beach tribe at Maroubra. For years authorities have battled to disperse the beach tribes. But as the centuries passed, and the tribe names changed, their culture has survived." - Thanks, Steph

[If true, Great news!] -- Hollywood Wire Tap: Dueling ‘LA Confidential’ sequels…who’ll be first to the draw? (TMZ) -- Would the real sequel to "L.A. Confidential" please step forward? That’s the question posed by TMZ’s City of Industry column today. It appears the creative team and stars from the original "L.A. Confidential" are in discussions with Twentieth Century Fox-based Regency Enterprises about re-teaming for a sequel to the Oscar-winning noir flick. This may come as some surprise to Joe Carnahan, however, who will be directing an “L.A. Confidential” sequel based on James Ellroy’s “White Jazz.” That film is set to star George Clooney. TMZ says insiders are whispering that this new sequel, from Curtis Hanson and Brian Helgeland, wouldn't rely on the plot of "White Jazz," and rather pick up where "L.A. Confidential" ended: With Lt. Ed Exley, a rising star in the LAPD, and Officer Bud White, now an ex-cop who lives with an ex-whore. Whether or not the Australian duo who broke out in the original, Guy Pearce and Russell Crowe, will mark a return to their roles is unclear but discussions are reportedly on going.
